Write, of course!
I’ve had days of internet issues now, starting with a frustrating ‘conversation’ with a woman at a call centre who spoke with such a strong accent, I could understand perhaps one word per sentence.
This was just before midnight, so I probably wasn’t at my best, but the witching hour is when I do my best writing – it’s dark and quiet and there are no distractions – perfect for getting into ‘the zone’.
Unfortunately, the zone was shut and locked that night, because I couldn’t settle to writing, knowing that I had the nasty red light on my router still to sort out.
After a fruitless hour of pointless checks, mostly targeted at my laptop – which had no problem contacting the router, it was the router that wasn’t contacting the internet – the rep agreed to ‘escalate’ the problem. 24 – 72 hours they said.
So as a happy result, the sequel to Prince’s Man gained another 10,000 words.
But my blog has been neglected. Ah well, you can’t have it all ways.
So please forgive the rather unfocussed rambling, normal service will be resumed shortly – provided TalkTalk have really fixed the problem this time, and this isn’t a flash in the pan, as it was for 2 hours on Friday.
Now, back to work…
